Pitt Pool Opens for Summer Season
New York City public pools officially opened yesterday. For the Lower East Side, that means the Pitt Pool (aka Hamilton Fish) is ready to go.
The launch happened with great fanfare. Parks Commissioner Sue Donoghue joined Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine, Assembly Member Harvey Epstein, Senator Brian Kavanagh, Council Member Carlina Rivera, and local kids and community members yesterday to celebrate the start of the outdoor pool season.
Also remember that only white shirts and hats are allowed on the pool deck; nothing with colors.
However, due to a documented shortage of lifeguards – a nationwide problem – all swim programs across the city are canceled. That includes Lap Swim, Senior Swim, and Learn to Swim.
